[image]Dust and Smoke Over West Africa - Image derived from code developed by the using data from the Goddard Earth Sciences DAAC.
The West African coastline was partially hidden beneath a thick veil of haze—likely a mixture of dust and smoke from numerous agricultural fires—on February 17, 2004. In this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Terra satellite, the active fire detections made by the sensor are marked in yellow. Sensor: Terra/MODIS.

[image]Drought on the Serengeti Plain - Jeff Schmaltz
Widespread drought in eastern Africa has withered the grass and other vegetation of northern Tanzania’s famous Serengeti Plain in January 2006. The rainy season should have begun around October (2005), but so far, has failed to arrive. According to some news reports, the severe drought has created great stress among the Seregeti’s migrating wildlife, including wildebeest and zebras, as well as less nomadic animals such as giraffes...

Forest fires, for example those caused by lightning strikes, have long been part of many ecosystems. However, fires are having greater and greater impacts on the land and the atmosphere as the scale of the burning increases with human activity. Burning of forest and grassland is used in many regions for the purpose of land clearing, such as in Southeast Asia, where the yearly agricultural burning is at its peak.Among other pollutants and particles, biomass burning releases high amounts of carbon...
